Early history[ edit ] The oldest known fossil species within Vulpes is V. The deposits where these fossils are found are about 7 million years old, which might make them the earliest Canidae in the Old World. They are estimated to have weighed between 1. The age of the deposits Early Pleistocene makes it the earliest occurrence of Vulpes in Europe. Of these eight, six are not fossil, and three species still remain in North America V. The remaining three moved on to sections of Africa over time. Although canid limbs are designed specifically for running quickly on land to catch prey, Vulpes species avoid rapid sprints, excluding being chased, and have become more specialized for leaping and grasping prey. The adaptions for leaping, grasping, and climbing include the lengthening of hind limbs in relation to fore limbs, as well as overall slenderizing of both hind and fore limbs. Muscles are also emphasized along the axis of limbs. Diet[ edit ] This genus is omnivorous and prone to scavenging. The foods of choice for Vulpes consist of invertebrates , a variety of small vertebrates , grasses , and some angiosperms. True foxes exhibit hoarding behavior or caching where they store away food for another day out of sight from other animals. For the most part, this coexistence is agreeable for both fox and man, but can sometimes result in house pet cat disappearances. General overview[ edit ] Though this varies in intensity from species to species, foxes operate within a hierarchical society, where dominance is established early in life. Dominant kits receive more food and are subsequently larger. If a dispute in the hierarchy occurs, dominance is determined by fighting. The loser may be subjected to rejection from its social group, as well as serious injuries. These social groups usually consist of three or four adults and have not been documented to surpass 10 adults. Reproduction[ edit ] A male is referred to as a dog, and the female as a vixen. They are very similar in appearance, though dogs have larger heads. Mating occurs in late winter. This mating process starts when the vixen digs out an undisclosed number of potential breeding dens and begins to release a mating scent. Gestation takes 7—8 weeks, putting typical birth occurrence in March, and on average, kits begin to emerge in late April. The parents work as a unit in the upbringing of their offspring, but do not mate for life. Once fully weaned, kits seek out various insects. The parents supplement this diet with a variety of mammals and birds. During early to middle July, the kits are able to hunt on their own and soon move away from their parents. The most notable case documented is the domestication of the silver fox in Novosibirsk , Russia , at the Siberian Institute of Cytology and Genetics. Fox hunting Fox hunting was started in the United Kingdom in the 16th century that involves tracking, chasing, and killing a fox with the aid of foxhounds and horses. It has since then spread to Europe, the United States, and Australia.
